Ahansel River Morocco Rafting Adventure

Ahansel River - River Rush

Rafting in Morocco

Arriving into the hustle and bustle of Marrakech will amaze you-this is one of the most fascinating cities in North Africa. If you have time, visit the many souqs and then in the evening the main square comes alive with colour and music as the snake charmers and magicians take their places. The aroma of the freshly cooked cuisine carries along the winding streets inviting you to sample some of the wonderful local dishes on offer. Heading to the river after experiencing the whirlwind that is Marrakech is an amazing way to relax. Marvel at the waterfalls and the blueness of Bin El Ouidane lake as we journey through the mountains to our camp ready for the excitement of running the best white water that Morocco has to offer. Join us as we take a trip through one of the most enticing and picturesque countries in the world.

Day 1

Please arrange your own transfer from your Riad to the Hotel Islane, ready for pickup. We'll collect you from the Hotel Islane at 8.30 in our private minibus and leave the hustle and bustle of Marrakech for the serenity of the Atlas mountains. On a clear day, we'll have amazing views up towards the Atlas mountains and on occasion we will also see Mt Toubkhal, North Africas highest mountain. As we reach ther Atlas foothills, we'll turn off to Cascade D'Ouzoud, Morocco's higest and certainly most impressive waterfall. Here we'll have lunch and relax in the cool mist, all the while being closely observed by the local monkey population (more correctly our lunch is being observed!) From here we'll drive past Bin El Ouidane, the stunning lake we finish on in two days time. We climb in our vehicle over the hills to Tiloguite. This is a village we have been supporting with doing good work over a decade, supporting schools and sanitation. Once at camp, our team have prepared some snacks for you and you'll get to relax and enjoy a drink from the bar.
Included: Lunch and Dinner.  Not included: Airport transfers.

After a sumptuous lunch, we tackle the biggest rapid of the trip, Rock the Kasbah. If time allows we can also take a walk up to this amazing piece of history. We'll arrive at camp early afternoon in time to relax with some canapes and a drink from the cash bar.

Berber Camp 2 is a stunning place to wake up in the heart of the Ahansel River Gorge. The ground crew have prepared breakfast for you, befgore we have a bit of a strech and warm up and get onto the rafts for our trip down to Bin El Ouidane. You'll get some excellent rapids today including Cheeky Monkey, Ducky Ripper and Splat Rock. After all the rapids are finish we float into 2 amazing gorges, both around 200 metres straight up and barely over the width of a raft. We emerge into the braid of the river before we get to the lake itself, where we'll be met by our boat, which then tows us back across the lake to our waiting vehicles while we enjoy lunch taking in the stunning views. Once changed, we take the 3 hour drive back to Marrakech (drop off at Hotel Islane only).
